I think it looks alright. It certainly pops out and is painted very well.

That looks really good. The blue just pops, while you have solid shading throughout. Good job.

Wow, the cloak looks really good and the armour too!
Are you planning on doing something with the"runes" on his armour?

Luv your armour, Bloodofthefallen2, extremely well done! But that cloak - that is awesome, easily the best I have seen and something to aspire to.

Cheers.

Man I love the way you paint. Two thumbs up! I pretty much appreciate the color scheme. I’m kind of a blue, teal, aqua fan myself. Keep on with the good work.

Thanks guys :-)

Its difficult with colours as When I do skin i always vary what colours i use to give more realism to an army. Even with the cloak I just used what felt right when I was painting it. here is what I think is used...

Kislev flesh Base coat
sections shaded with the base mix and mournfang brown 50/50 and others shaded with the base mix and Naggaroth night 50/50 then i final shade of the MB and NN with out the base colour
Then the highlights are the base coat 50/50 with screaming skull.

I first glazed my shades into the darkest areas, Glazing is taking a very diluted paint about 80% water to 20% paint and gradually building up the colour being sure to paint towards the area you wish to be darker. I then do the same with the highlights being sure to pull the paint towards the area I wish to be lightest. I'm sorry a cannot be more helpful colour wise as I think you need to vary depending on what your feeling.

Glazing is a great technique but It takes a long time to achieve. you have to be very patient. I lost count of how long the cloak took but Id say roughly 2 hours. Wet blending wound speed up the process but I find glazing to be more forgiving.

I hope this helps and that I haven't just confused everybody more lol

Well now that looks just awesome! I would like to get a closeup (+50%) of the head, just to see your great work in more detail.

Nice description of your painting, I'll have to try it out as it fits perfectly with my work speed ;-)

Yeah, a tutorial for everything you paint would be nice - you're THAT good. Smile
What colours did you use for the face? Man, this is a gold mine of painting.

HAHA to be fair I used the same technique as above for 90% of this model so all you need to do is apply it to what you want to paint. And thank you for the kind words. The colours where Rakarth flesh, pallid wych flesh and screamer pink.

He's now finshed bar the base hopefully get some decent pics once he's based
